Just got word of a fabulous deal for active duty members of the military. “In honor of National Military Appreciation Month, JetBlue is offering active duty military personnel $1 fares for domestic, nonstop flights, for a limited time, departing from the two Jetblue cities nearest to the nation’s capital: Washington Dulles International Airport in Dulles, Va., and Richmond International Airport in Richmond, Va.,” says a press release from the U.S. Department of Defense.
Good for nonstop flights from Dulles to Boston, Los Angeles/Long Beach, Oakland, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, and New York/JFK. From Richmond, the $1 deal is good for nonstop flights to Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and New York/JFK.
Bring a valid Department of Defense common access card and official documentation to check in. Flights booked with this deal are not eligible for online flight check-in or at an airport kiosk. Taxes and fees still apply.
To book the $1 fare, call 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583) and select Option 4.
Caveats: must book by May 7 for travel between May 8 and May 31 from Dulles or Richmond to any JetBlue destination in the continental United States served nonstop from those airports. Proof of eligibility is required. Retirees, reservists and military families are not eligible.
Thank you, Dan.
